International Project Offices

IMBeR has two International Project Offices, one in Halifax, Canada (IPO-Canada), and one in Shanghai, China (IPO-China).

The main tasks of the International Project Offices are to:

  • assist the IMBeR Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) with planning and carrying out scientific research;
  • serve as a channel of communication between scientists working in different countries on various aspects of global change; and
  • assist the SSC in collating information on national and regional programmes of global change research relating to IMBeR, to ensure that there is no unnecessary duplication of effort and that IMBeR makes effective use of existing knowledge in its analysis of processes and change at all relevant scales.
